Myself and a friend stayed for a weekend and rented from the landlord Bill Mich. We were surprised to see such a negative comment about him - we thought he was nice and went out of his way to make sure we had everything we needed as he said he was a new owner in this hotel. The room was...

As others have mentioned, these units are individually owned. I found this rental on vrbo.com and contacted the owner for reservations, making payments through paypal. Payment and return of deposit went smoothly. This is an efficiency rental,not a full service hotel. The apartment is small and nicely decorated, as pictured. A cozy space for 1 or 2 people. Kept the...

My girlfriend and I had a great time at the Homestead this past weekend. I was calling around last week to try and find a hotel in Ocean City that was close to the action and reasonably priced. After having about 10 hotels tell me that they have a 2-night minimum stay I talked to Beth at the Homestead. She...

When we arrived. although the room was ok, the bed was not. it was a futon type bed. with only a 3 inch mattress with no cushion. I sat it in. I have intermittent back problems and I just knew it wasn't for us.When...

Beth, the front desk attendant, was possibly the nicest person I have met on my travels in a long time. She let my girlfriend and I check in 2 hours early, and had a bag of chocolate kisses waiting in our room for us for our anniversary. She was such a doll. The concept of this little hotel/condo is fantastic,...

My fiancée and I stayed a weekend in room 607 of the Homestead Beach Hotel in June 2011 and had a wonderful visit. In fact, we’ve already made plans to return July 4 weekend. The room was clean and cheap, and the location was amazing! Room 607 had just been renovated. The bathroom, although small, had all new tile and...

Stayed several nights with no complaints. The Hotel is situated feet from the boardwalk and close to resturants. Room was inexpensive, clean and comfortable with a view of the ocean. What more could you ask?

I read some of the other reviews, and was a little nervous. My wife and I were heading down to the Jersey Shore to relax and walk the boards. I was in contact with one of the private owners of a unit in the Homestead (This is how this hotel operates - each room is individually owned). The price was...

Reading these descriptions I can tell you that the people didn't bother to do their homework. If you check the website, the place isn't trying to hide anything. It's a condotel not a hotel, its not pretending to be one. There is no maid service. You are renting a room for your stay. That being said, I was very happy...

I read all the reviews before I decided to stay here. When I understood the concept of this establishment, I was able to enjoy the good location of where we were staying. This is an efficiency rental property, that is individually owned. Unfortunately, not all the rooms has been renovated like the others. This is an old building, and the...

“Look at the photos, and read the descriptions, each room is different and all decorated differently, ask questions, some rooms have ocean views and others do not, so if thats important to you, make sure you ask what your view is.”
